Originally founded by Chris Wanstrath, PJ Hyett and Tom Preston-Werner as a project to simplify sharing code, GitHub has grown into an application used by over a million people to store over two million code repositories, making GitHub the largest code host in the world.

Code is about the people writing it. We focus on lowering the barriers of collaboration by building powerful features into our products that make it easier to contribute. The tools we create help individuals and companies, public and private, to write better code, faster. Ship it!

GitHub is headquartered in San Francisco with team members working remotely from all around the world. We operate in a culture based on personal responsibility, rather than management, by hiring great people and treating them accordingly. You can meet the team below or around your town at a meetup!
